Quick stupid question. When you guys are editing something to post here let's say. Do you change the image size in photoshop. Like IMAGE>IMAGE SIZE>1024xwhatever? Then upload to say flickr or how do you do it? I've been resizing, then save for web, then uploading. I'm not sure if I'm losing quality doing that or not.

Quick rant, damn car show photography is hard, harsh light, people in the way, cars parked close together, etc etc.

i use lightroom to export all my photos - i put the quality slider at an 8 out of 10 - thats all i do - flickr does the rest

I export the full-size JPG from LightRoom, then open the JPG in IrfanView and resize (with resample) to a preferred "long side" setting. I may lose a teensy bit of quality, but I prefer the smaller file sizes that result for uploading to Flickr, etc.

Vintage GP pics are so awesome!

Thanks Jason, it was a great event. Would've loved to stay longer but I neglected to bring a hat or sunscreen and got absolutely cooked, including funny burns on my arms from holding the camera and 70-200 all day.

Vinz it looks like you ended up with the Manfrotto, that's supposed to be a good 'pod. Personally I use the Gitzo GM2561T, but I'm short enough for it. :D Keep in mind you might want something to do a quick release

I can use my manfrotto 498rc2 or my spare ravelli ballhead. Thanks

I am looking pretty hard at it...And I've been through both the 16-35 and the 17-40 threads...Lots of talent in both of those. But the 16-35 is twice as much, AND I'd need a bigger filters (for the rare times I use them). The 17-40 is 77mm.

Takei posts some funny crap on his wall every single day.

I was in the same boat as you deciding between the two. 16-35 w/ a 82mm filter or a 17-40 w/ a 77mm filter. I already owned 77mm filters however the thing that bust it for me was f/2.8 over a f/4 aperture. I'm not sure what you shoot all the time, but for me, indoors and out and DOF is important to me plus I'm a slight bokeh whore. lmfao

Quick rant, damn car show photography is hard, harsh light, people in the way, cars parked close together, etc etc.

I export from Lightroom to Photoshop, slap my information on the image, resize it to 1024x or the other way around, and save as JPG at image quality 10. Seems like a long ass process but I'm so used to doing 300+ photos at a time, I barely even think about it. I move fast and I'm glad my computer can keep up with me. haha

Car show photography is easy! Do what I do, just politely ask them to move so you can get the photo, most people respect you if you have the camera. After all, I get shots like this all the time. LOL

This event had over 2000 cars and think how many of those cars each fit a human in..
